Sally has experience working on a range of projects with people affected by conflict, poverty and inequality, as well as in digital marketing and communications.
While studying for her MSc in International Development: Development Management, she developed theoretical and practical knowledge in project planning and management. After her studies, she took on an internship with a youth organisation in the West Bank, Palestine, where she gained insight into the impact of conflict and effective tools for improving community cohesion. Since returning, she has been active in supporting refugees and asylum seekers in Manchester.
Working with Manchester City of Sanctuary, she has been responsible for delivering community events and projects that foster the wellbeing of people seeking sanctuary in Greater Manchester. She is most proud of her work in building the organisation’s volunteer base, which provides the opportunity for refugees and asylum seekers to become active participants in the charity and gain valuable employability and life skills.
Alongside this work, she has been working for an integrated marketing agency in Liverpool as a Digital Marketing Executive. Sally is looking forward to applying her digital skills to bring together mentors and mentees, and to demonstrate the impact of One Million Mentors.
